1st day of shredding for me this season! I cruised over to Wild Mountain to check out the pre-season snow. I was pleased to find that a lot of good friends were there to partake in the joyous ocasion with me! I feel like pre-season is some of the best riding a person can get in the midwest! Its kinda like a family re-union. Everyone shows up in their own fashion and throws down like its the way its been all summer. Hugs and high fives are flung around then off to the chair we go. The fun starts here.
Greeted by these guys! Scott and Ethan.
What more could you want when you pull into the parking lot? Good friends kickin it getting ready for the shred! I love the midwest!

Zack and Anthony. Are they watching the shredder? na, They're admiring the skills of the guys holding the ladder in the background. We watched them struggle at getting the rope up for the whole lift ride. Good times.
Pete and um... oops. forgettin names... now i'm in trouble... but damn. Lookin good strappin in for the ride!
Simco and Bush. Sounds like future politicians.
Sunset and kids getting knocked out. A kid turned around and stopped just to find out that chairlifts continue going round and round.... Ouch! He took a good hit right in the noggin!
This is what happens when kids get knocked out by chairlifts.... Gotta bail off in the dirt.
